Subject: RE: BS: why do we need religion
The one thing I know, Bill, is that I don't know! ;-) I just live and learn as best I can.

I'm not debating or arguing, just discussing things that interest me. When they interest me a lot, I get passionate about it.

My supposition is that a mind builds a body one cell at a time from pure energy, using a high level of organized and purposeful biological intelligence. It's also possible that a mind in quite a confused state could build a body in a sort of unaware way through the same biological method. The biological structures are there to do it, obviously. Science agrees on that.

In the same way, an assembly line in an auto factory is there, along with tools, paint, etc...to build a car...but nothing whatsoever will happen until a mind makes to decision to get the process rolling, right? A number of minds have to be there to monitor and supervise the process. I think everything works that way, by intelligence...mind decides, natural laws provide, and something is accomplished.

I might be wrong.

There is no way for me to set up a lab experiment confirming or denying my suppositions. At least, not that I know of...

But then, like I said, the one thing I know is that I don't know. And just about nobody else does either. The commonest error people make is to think they DO know a lot when in fact they know precious little about reality. They just accumulate available facts. The facts they accumulate make up what amounts to a few grains of sand on a very, very long beach, in my opinion.

But it's just my opinion.
